NEW: Electronic Filing, Online Access and ACH Payments
Introducing Tax Connect for Electronic Filing and Online Account Access
The Westerville Tax Department now offers improved account access for residents and businesses. Taxpayers may log in to their account for real-time information of balances and payments made, to make ACH payments and e-file tax returns with a new e-filing program. Taxpayers can access the online account options at Tax Connect. Please remember that you will need to upload scanned copies of your W-2 and Federal schedules when filing online.
Note: Non-residents working in Westerville have no filing obligation with the City unless their employer did not withhold Westerville tax or under withheld the tax at our 2.0% income tax rate. Refunds must be filed on a paper form with the proper tax documents and if required employer certification.
Effective January 2018, the City of Westerville is transitioning to a new method of accepting ACH payments. Before an ACH payment can be made in 2018, you must call the Tax Department at (614) 901-6420 or submit an ACH Authorization form. After the form has been submitted, login to your account via our online account access. Select "ACH Debit" from the menu options and process your payment. Please note that the authorization form only needs to be completed one time before making the first payment.
